Instagram and iReport just got a little closer »


It's easier than ever to share your images with CNN, simply by tagging #cnnireport on Instagram.


We joined Instagram in 2011, and since then, thousands of you have shared incredible photos and videos using #cnnireport. Now, we’re able to automatically highlight some of the best directly on The images will appear under the IGiReports account, along with the Instagram user’s username and caption. And of course, the cream of the crop have a good chance at being featured on CNN.


What kind of content are we looking for? Whether you’ve got a newsworthy photo of a wildfire, a portrait of what life is like in an indigenous tribe or a stunning travel photo, we’d like to see it. Follow @cnnireport on Instagram to see what other types of photos and videos we showcase on our feed.


If you've like a chance of being featured, tag your photos #cnnireport on Instagram. Please keep an eye on your feed when you tag us, as we might comment with some questions for you!

Meet Talia, our summer intern! »


We're thrilled to introduce you to a new member of the iReport crew. Please welcome iReporter turned summer intern extraordinaire, Talia Day!


Talia shadowed our team twice during her other CNN internships and we’re happy to finally have her working alongside us this summer. We asked her to write a little bit about herself, so without further ado, we turn it over to her:


Hello! I’m Talia, a Savannah College of Art and Design student majoring in Television Producing and the new 2014 summer intern for CNN iReport. I have a passion for storytelling and an interest in all things digital, which is why I am super excited to be joining the iReport team!


Before coming to CNN, I worked as a freelancer for film/television and have had the privilege of traveling around the world. I’ve always been curious about different cultures and I almost always carry my camera (you never know when news will happen). My first love is documentary filmmaking and I am currently working to finish my latest film “Facing Freedom.” I know I will learn a lot from the iReport team and hope to become a vital part of the CNN iReport community. This is my third internship with CNN and I hope it’s the beginning of a long career with the network.


Say hello to Talia in the comments below! We’re excited to have her as part of the team.
